Inaugural HDR Research Conference
On 19th November 2012, the School of Health and Social Development held its inaugural 'HDR Research Conference' that showcased the innovative research being conducted by PhD and Masters by Research candidates within the school. Twenty students presented their research on topics ranging from ethnicity and health to obesity prevention. The following presenters were voted as having the 'best presentation in the session': Annemarie Nevill, Rona Weerasuriya, Elyse Warner and Jennifer Marks.
The conference also involved two 'panels of experts' who shared their experiences and knowledge of the examination process and dealing with the media. The event was well attended and considered a great success and the plan is for the School to hold an annual HDR Research Conference.
